Everything at Tria was done well. They were very welcoming, sat us in a cozy booth, one of the best tables we have had in ages, and the server was genuinely enthusiastic.


The food was also done well. The crispy lobster rolls were very good and had a nice sauce to accompany them. My seafood fettuccine was a great size not too large or too small, had lots of shell fish on it all perfectly cooked and the cream sauce was excellent. The apple strudel was very good a nice light crust with a nice apple filling.


I really enjoyed my time at Tria, if it was closer for us I am sure we would go back.


     •     Red Wine Braised Lamb Shank - With Wild Mushrooms & Creamy Roquefort Potatoes $26.00


I loved the lamb shank. The meat was juicy and tender, and it slid right off the bone. The red wine braising and wild mushrooms added complex, traditional, delicious flavors.


The lobster rolls were also good. The lobster was of good quality and plentiful. We even found ourselves feasting on the fresh, delicious greens on the side. It's hard to justify the price, but considering the inputs, the price seemed about right.


The apple strudel was fine, made better by a generous pour of strong calvados.

The hospitality was warm, welcoming, and enthusiastic. The service was well-timed and

thoughtful.


While we sat inside, it was a perfect night, and we should have taken advantage of their spacious patio seating.
